You can say we are biased, or maybe not. Last week travel industry folks confirmed what we’ve known all along when they voted Wye River in the “Top 10 Most Charming Beach Town in Australia”.
Online Travel Magazine invited over 50 folks whose job it is to get around our great wide, beautiful land – travel writers, photographers and selected professionals- to vote on the places they thought the most appealing. And Wye River is in the Top 10!
“Nestled along one of the most spectacular sections of the Great Ocean Road that runs along the south-eastern coast of Australia, this small coastal town provides a superb end point to one of the world’s great road trips. Once here, you’ll find the landscape is a scenic mix of rugged cliffs and verdant mountain foliage while the main sandy beach is surrounded by rock pools and reefs that attract fishing lovers and intrepid explorers all year round.”
And that’s not to mention our wildlife, birds, koalas, whales. Our yummy coffee at the gorgeous General Store Cafe and the most delicious Fish ‘n Chips with the best ocean view in the entire country at the Wye Beach Pub.
We’re also chuffed that nearby towns Lorne (lots of cafes and art galleries) and Apollo Bay (fishing fleet and marina) were included too.
Thanks to the folks at Travel Magazine, we couldn’t agree more, a stay at Wye River is something absolutely special.
